    In california its really tough to pass a smog test I had a oxygen sensor replaced and the check engine light came back on, Complained to the shop that did the work and they had no idea why the light returned finally found the answer on this site http://repairpal.com/check-engine-light"On vehicles 1996 and newer, using an inexpensive "universal" oxygen sensor will cause problems with the emissions system." How frustrating is that these shops are using universal oxygen sensors and charging dealer prices for the part, They finally put the dealer part in and the light went off and passed smog only took three weeks and I had to show them this website before they would put in the correct part.

Take your car to Autozone and they will be happy to check it for you and tell you what is causing your light to be on..

    I have changed my mind, I want you to go to autozone and get the code that is turning your lite on. Then come back to Fixya and present it to some of the guys on here. I have read some of the problems and solutions and these guys are sharp. They can help you..*****

Disconnect the battery for 10 minutes then see if it comes on again after turning the car on

My speedometer stopped working ,my abs light stays on and my check engine light stays on and the brake light stays on


Check the "tone wheel" and magnetic pickup that sends the signal to the speedo, also to the ABS, and possibly integrated into the brakes for brake light.

It is one magnetic pickup that controls these three lights. As far as Engine goes, get the car to an Autozone (if it is safe to drive) and they will check all your codes, including check engine, with their scanner for free and identify the location of the problem for you for FREE!.

Hope this helps.

You need to get the codes checked to see what is causing the light ot come on.You can get them checked at Auto Zone or most part stores for free.But you need to retrieve the codes first to find out why the light is coming or staying on.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Door open light staying on, rear view interior light, and check engine light staying on


The door light and interior lights are staying on because one of your door switches needs to be replaced. The vehicle is sensing that a door is ajar and that will keep your interior lights on. This should not necessarily set the check engine light off however. I would believe that there is another issue setting off the check engine light. If there is a parts store in your area ask them if they can scan your vehicles check engine light, and if there is a charge. They will be able to retrieve a code that will explain the problem of your check engine light being on

''Check Engine Soon'' light Stays On.


Must have engine computer scanned to get codes and determine cause of check engine light. Low tire light probably needs reset. Open passenger door and remove panel on side of dash. Reset switch should be located in that compartment.

You will need to have engine codes pulled from vehicles computer and perform repair, before the light will go off.
